Colgin IX Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

9.566 ratings on Delectable
$599

From the Pritchard Hill Vineyard, the 2006 IX Proprietary Red Estate is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot. The good news is that there are 1,500 cases of this cuvee. It, too, reveals the noble sweetness of tannin, the extraordinary rich, intense mouthfeel, and sumptuous aromas of flowers, burning embers, blackberries, blueberries, spice box, and cedar. With extraordinary intensity, beautiful purity, a texture and flavors that build incrementally on the palate, and a significantly long finish, this is a perfect wine. Robert Parker

Funky, big and, at first, a bit hot, but oh so decadent. It lived up to expectations, but that could have been because we were drinking this at Colgin and enjoying the view.
